A$AP Rocky looks dapper in a double-breasted suit for the premiere of documentary Stockholm Syndrome

He was imprisoned in Sweden in 2019 amid an assault case that saw high-profile figures including Kanye West and former President Donald Trump getting involved.

And A$AP Rocky was ready to tell his side of the story on Sunday when he arrived at the premiere of the documentary Stockholm Syndrome, about his career and brush with prison time, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City‘s Battery Park.

The 32-year-old rapper looked dapper in a well-tailored black double-breasted suit.

Rocky (real name: Rakim Mayers) paired the suit with a classic white dress shirt and a black tie decorated with white spots. 

He spiced up the outfit with a strand of thick pearls tied around his neck and draped over his tie. 

The necklace matched several large pearl rings, and he added some more flair with a diamond-encrusted luxury wristwatch.

The chart topper sported more diamonds, including a modest stud in one ear and a more opulent diamond-covered spike in the other ear.

He had his hair styled in intricate braids that were tied back in a short ponytail.

Rocky’s film, which is directed by The Architects, traces his early years and stratospheric rise to become one of the most acclaimed rappers working today.

But the film’s title is derived form an 2019 incident in Stockholm, Sweden, in which he was arrested for aggravated assault, which was later reduced to simple assault.

The songwriter, along with his bodyguard and members of his entourage, were accused of assaulting a man named Mustafa Jafari.

Rocky later published videos of the incident, although they were reportedly edited and missing footage apparently showing his bodyguard scuffling with the man.

While in prison awaiting trial, American musicians and celebrities advocated for his release, and former President Donald Trump tweeted his support for him and sent his Special Envoy for Hostage Affairs to observe the trial.

Rocky was eventually convicted and given a suspended sentence, though he had to pay around $1,270 to the victim. 

After his release, he opted not to appeal the verdict, though the international conviction later prevented him from entering Canada for a performance.

The documentary also features appearances from Rocky’s girlfriend Rihanna.

The two have been the subject of romance rumors going back to 2013, but it wasn’t until she ended things with her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel that things started to heat up between the two musicians.

Prior to the premiere, he gushed to ET about her being featured in the documentary, saying it was ‘important having that support in real life, you know?’

‘It’s amazing and I’m honestly truly blessed, for real,’ he added.

He also stressed that it was important to present a fair portrait of his brush with the law in Sweden.

‘I just wanted to tell my story without really complaining or without, you know, seeming like a victim, or like I wanted a pity party or what not,’ he said. ‘So, here it is.’
